Surgery options such as liposuction used to be the only option to remove excess fat beneath the chin. The first of its kind on the market, Kybella™, is an injected solution that is FDA-approved to reduce small pockets of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. At Louisiana Women’s Aesthetics in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the team offers Kybella injections so you can look and feel your very best. The most common treatment area is submental fullness or double chin and well as jowls and long the jawline. Schedule an appointment by calling the office or requesting online today.
A double chin, also called submental fat, occurs when a layer of fat forms under the chin. Even with diet and exercise, a double chin can be difficult to get rid of. Kybella is effective due to its active ingredient deoxycholic acid, which naturally occurs in the body to help metabolize fat.
Kybella dissolves moderate to severe fat under the chin and along the jawline. Due to the swelling component, patients may also experience simultaneous tightening of the skin due to retraction.
Kybella delivers incredible and dramatic results without surgery and with minimal downtime. Most patients receive between 2-6 treatments, with each treatment one month apart. Results are noted as early as two months following the second treatment.
Immediately upon injection, the patient will experience a burning sensation as the acid immediately begins to emulsify the fat. This sensation is temporary and will only last 30 minutes. It is relieved with ice, which is provided immediately after treatment.
With a healthy lifestyle, these results are permanent. The fat will only return if the patient experiences a 15-20 pound weight gain.
Kybella is an appropriate treatment for women and men over the age of 18 who are:
